jihadists who taught in iraq. and, yes, they are looking not only to the fall of assad, but creating the american militant. >> is this al qaeda? >> not necessarily at all. and i think you have to future in perspective that these are people that have come to file for their own ropes. this there are some from europe, so many fighters that he saw coming in from france or other european states, you look at the unemployment level there you can young men with no live, just like iraq, this become as magnet for them. ivan watson told me he flew to turkey on a plane load just libyans on board that plane. so they are present. they are on the ground. but it doesn't mean al qaeda. and remember this, what was the fate of those in jihadist fighters in iraq? i saw them lined up on their knees with smuslims behind them respect forced to leave or killed outright. >> and of course the obama administration has sai syrians should determine their own future. but should the u.s. be concerned about islamists getting in as part of -- >> it's too late. because when i talked to the activists in homs, for exam
was you're leaving, we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we have less of a desire to stay engaged in that region. and in that vacuum, clearly what has happened is that others have taken advantage of this situation. >> you probably know this news, but it's being reported. you said we're leaving iraq, you're right. iran is shuttling weapons to syria. >> there's no love lost between the government of nouri al maliki and the iranians. we have left iraq, they don't have the capability to defend their air space, even if they wanted to, we don't have a presence in there and they don't have the capability to do anything about it. so if iran wants to fly over their air space, we have left nothing behind to help them with that. >> given our unreliability as you put it, let me ask you, where do you go on the iranian nuclear bomb. suppose we wake up one morning and iran has a nuclear bomb. what would this administration do? do they have policies? two they have contingencies? what do you think their next step would be? >> they have been so focused on convincing the world that the irani

is when then-president george w. bush ordered the u.s.-led invasion of iraq, march 2003. it was also the month when it was ordered that the flag-draped coffins of american service members killed abroad could not be photographed when those coffins got back to the united states. that change in policy under george w. bush was a source of anger and controversy. it is why coffins were sometimes used in anti-iraq war protests to visually represent those real caskets of americans killed in the war that the bush administration would not allow the country to see. the bush administration banned the media from showing those dignified transfer ceremonies as the invasion of iraq started in 2003. and they kept the policy in place throughout george w. bush's time in office. as the country waged two of the longest wars in our history. it was not until the new president replaced george w. bush that the ban was rescinded. on thursday, february 26th, 2009, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the follo

in the disgraceful moment in the state department, saying going to iraq would be a death sentence. that wasn't true. we didn't lose diplomats there. but it's true that people could be deterred from taking dangerous posts. but we have to learn to rely on allies who are on our side of what we see as a threat. but we need to step back and begin to tell the truth. the threat against us is not just al qaeda. there is a violent ideology that is politicized, seeking to use opportunities like the video and other kinds of things to push us out of the region and to criticize those who stand against this islamist movement in the region. >> last question, of all the countries, 20 or more where there are protests, who is with us? which countries, do you think we can rely on the most to supportinous our efforts to calm things down? >> there are many countries that are deeply disturbed by the uncertainty that is unfolding there. many around the gulf coast have tried in their ways to influence outcomes in libya, for instance, and the new government in libya, while this was a terrible event that occurred there, the

. but i think it will be laid in the context of the president not only having stopped the war in iraq, gone and violated pakistani air space, which wasn't done before, and getting al qaeda in pakistan, that's bin laden and putting it in the context of 12 embassies attacked in the 8 years of the bush administration and losing a u.s. diplomat in pakistan and our president recognizing that we have to shift our focus, not just in the global war on terror, but to dhiena. i think this may take a bit of luster off, but overall, i think it's quite a good step that he has taken for america, securing our peace and prosperity. >> eric: that's the final word. >> thank you for having me. >> eric: thank you both. >> jamie: major development in the showdown over iran's nuclear program. the economic sanctions are stinging hard with the israeli finance minister, saying iran's economy is paying a heavy price for nuclear activity, edging on collapse, he said. so diplomacy is taking center stage at the u.n. general assembly. the prime minister warning the world that iran must be given a red line, accordi
